According to the precinct breakdown posted on the state Office of Elections website U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz and U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa each won one of the outstanding Puna precincts in Friday's makeup election in their Democratic primary for U.S. Senate.
The vote totals include the votes that were cast at the precincts, absentee walk-in and absentee mail-in ballots. Precinct 04-01 is Hawaiian Paradise Community Center and 04-02 is Keonepoko Elementary School:
Schatz won the nomination with 115,401 votes (48.5 percent) to 113,632 votes (47.8 percent) for Hanabusa. He will face former state lawmaker Cam Cavasso in the November general election.
Voting for both precincts was conducted Friday at Keonepoko Elementary. The precincts were closed during last Saturday's primary due to surrounding storm damage from Tropical Storm Iselle.
